EP1, the impressive debut from The A La Mode is an ear teasing hip hop pie topped with musical cream
Listening to hundreds of CD’s, vinyl’s, tapes and whatever else, playing instruments and bits around the flat, making one off samples, drinking beer, recording beer, jamming in the loft, playing video games, going to gigs, bending beats, morphing melodies, re-sampling, re-sampling again, changing, and duplicating is what you will hear on The A la mode’s EP1
Mixing styles like your mum makes cakes; EP1 effortlessly goes from heavy banging beats to jazzy chopped up improvisation. As The A la mode are an instrumental duo, top notch vocals are provided by Mag Matic, Spencer Kennedy and Adefila making this an all bases covered collaboration featuring fresh talents you really don’t want to miss.
The two halves of The A la mode (Dan Coffey and Ash Wiggins) have been making music together for over 10 years in various forms and styles under the guise of different projects.
From an early age Ash leant guitar, bass, piano and drums while Dan learnt guitar and piano. Together they played in lots of rock bands, and long winters meant rehearsing in a cold barn wearing layers of dodgy old 70s jumpers to keep warm.
Then as Ash discovered DJing and Dan focussed on electronica they moved apart for a few years, exploring their own musical needs in different projects. Eventually the idea of an eclectic collaboration that drew on every experience over their shared musical life made perfect sense and The A la mode was born.
